It was a tough week for Melbourn Squash Club’s teams as all three fell to defeat in the Cambs League.
The ladies’ side were the closest to victory, taking two matches off defending league champions Hunts County on their own courts.
Lucy Robertson and Frances Smith lost comfortably in their opening matches but Lynne Hays took her match to a fifth set tie-break, before finally succumbing to a 19-17 defeat.
This meant that the 3-1 wins recorded by Sam Pluck and Kate Bradshaw were consolations, though they did add useful points to Melbourn’s league total, leaving the final score at 16-10 to Hunts.
Melbourn’s first team also fell to a disappointing 18-8 loss to Division One’s bottom side G&L Sports Peterborough.
Aidan Hird got his side off to a great start, winning the first tie 3-1, but the rest of his team could not follow suit as they all lost.
Melbourn 2nds lost 17-5 at Hunts County 4ths in a mixed Division Three encounter.
